Derby County assistant manager Liam Rosenior is on the verge of becoming the Blackpool manager according to the report from Derby Telegraph. It was disclosed thatRosenior wants to speak with Derby County manager Wayne Rooney before an official announcement is made on his appointment as the new Blackpoolboss. What the former full-back wants to discuss with Rooney is unclear at the moment, but it is unlikelythat it would change anything concerning the managerial job at Blackpool. The deal for Rosenior to take the manager's job with the Tangerines is done and dusted.

As things stand, the long-term future of Rosenior is certain pending the announcement from Blackpool, but the same can't be said of Manchester United legend Rooney. The future of Rooney at Derby County is uncertain after the club suffered relegation from the English Championship at the end of the recently finished season. Rooney came close to saving the club from relegation from the Championship in the face of a 21-point deduction slapped on the club for breaching English Football League (EFL) rules and going into administration as well. In the end, the former Manchester United attacker failed to achieve Championship safety for the Rams.

On the future of Rooney at Derby County, prospective owners Chris Kirchner and Mike Ashley want him to stay at the club if eithercompletes the takeover.

Ex-Hull City and Fulham player Rosenoir became the assistant manager at Derby County when Rooney was named the new manager two years ago. He had joined the club as a first-team coach under Dutch manager Philip Cocu a year earlier. Rooney was initially named the interim Derby manager after Cocuwas sacked following the poor start to the 2020/21 season. Cocu lost his job after leading the Rams to the bottom of the Championship table.
